Phi Kappa Phi is the nation’s oldest and most selective collegiate honor society. In 1969, the society established its Foundation in an attempt to provide financial assistance to their overall mission. Phi Kappa Phi aims to recognize and promote academic excellence in all higher education fields while engaging a community of scholars in service to others. With the end of 2019 approaching, the Phi Kappa Phi Foundation is celebrating its 50th anniversary, according to a recent press release.
Donors have stepped forward over the years and donated more than $17 million.
This money has been used as awards for students, members, chapters, and institutions around the world. From fellowships for first-year graduate students to study abroad grants, dissertation fellowships to literacy grants, and professional development awards to pilot programs, the Foundation has served as a backbone of financial support for Phi Kappa Phi.
“Phi Kappa Phi has provided me with the opportunity of a lifetime by helping aid the cost of study abroad. As a result of this grant, I will be able to focus more on my academics and the culture of Europe, not the financial strain that the cost of study abroad places on a family. I could not be more grateful for how much Phi Kappa Phi cares for and invests in their scholars.” – Landry Smith, award recipient.
